Med Not Meds Classes Teaches Healthy Eating Through Mediterranean Diet

By Quinn O’Hara

This summer the Wakefield Library will host K-State Extension Nutrition, Food Safety, and Health Agent Kaitlin Moore for six presentations on the benefits of a mediterranean diet.

The Med Instead of Meds program was originally developed by the North Carolina State Extension Office with the goal of encouraging healthy eating.

The goal of the program is to show that a ‘Med Diet’ can lower a person’s risk for chronic disease, said Moore.

Moore said each class will include lessons and taste tests of several dishes featured in the program.

The Med Instead of Meds classes will be held every Wednesday from 6-7pm from May 8 to June 12. Those interested in attending the program need to pre-register with the K-State River Valley District Concordia Office to assure enough food for each program. The classes are free to attend.
